ST Suspension Kits

The insight and German engineering that go into shaping each ST component are centered around achieving a telepathic bond between man and machine.
A balance of exceptional strength and performance for vehicles with precision handling and control for drivers.
Respected in the insustry for solid design, ST Suspensions offer the versatility to adapt to both the street of the meanest of tracks.
It is the result of rigorous testing and detail that ensures all levels of performance are met, and expectations for a superior driving experience are well surpassed.
ST X Coilover Kits
Need to get low? ST coilovers feature a continuous thread construction for height adjustment from moderate to extreme! Each coilover is manufactured by KW Automotive and their expertise and know how ensures maximum quality and fantastic driving dynamics.
Once installed, the ST X coilover can be easily adjusted using a polyamide ring on the galvanized, multiple-sealed strut. Adjustment is different for each car, but typically you can expect between 35 and 65mm of lowering on both the front and rear axles.
Designed in conjunction with KW Germany, ST X coilovers deliver a sporty handling by reducing the car's bodyroll during compression as well as improving agility when driving fast. The high-quality production of each ST X coilover includes a low-friction and pressure resistant housing alongside a chrome-plated piston rod for maximum longevity. A mono block guide and ST seal package ensures the twin-tube dampers remain free of dirt particles in all weather conditions.
    Lowering with Style: The ST X coilovers:
  • Individual lowering within the TUV-tested adjustment range.
  • Front and rear axle thread adjustment (when possible).
  • Galvanized coilover struts with additional coating for optimized corrosion protection.
  • Complete solution with adjustable spring plate, race spring system and bumpers with dust protection.
  • Powerful twin-tube dampers with high-quality components for maximum longevity.
ST Suspensions ST X Coilover Kit, Height Adjustable Note: Height adjustable front and rear axles Lowering adjustment ranges in inches - Front: 1.2"-2.8" Rear: 1.2"-2.0"; In combination with the original wheel and tires, wheel spacers might need to be used.

ST XTA Coilover Kits
For those who demand the absolute best performance comes the ST XTA coilover. The full driving behavior of your car can be adjusted using KW damper technology along with an adjustable aluminum uni-ball top mount for fine-tuning of the camber and caster!
Performance driving in mind
ST XTA coilovers feature KW damping technology which allows the suspension to be made either stiffer or softer depending on the driving conditions. This damping adjustment is made on the upper end of the chromed piston rod allowing the setup to be changed almost instantly. If the rebound force is increased, the car will drive with even more track stability and further reduced bodyroll. If the rebound force is decreased, the car will feel more comfortable when on the move. For increased performance, the ST XTA features an aluminum adjustable topmount allowing the camber and caster to be adjusted depending on your driving needs or vehicle setup.
Easy lowering adjustment
Like all ST coilovers the lowering adjustment is made via a continuous thread on the galvanized strut. This even allows the lowering to be made even when the kit is installed by turning the spring plate higher or lower! NOTE: The lowering of each vehicle differs greatly with ST XTA coilovers due to the type of construction.
KW Engineering: Exclusive for ST suspension
The high-quality ST XTA coilover is based on the twin-tube damping principle of low friction combined with pressure-resistant damper housings. Manufactured directly at KW, a mono block guide and seal package reduces the friction of the damper as well as protecting it against corrosion and dirt. Each galvanized strut is sealed multiple times to ensure maximum longevity in ALL weather conditions.
  • Latest damping technology for maximum longevity
  • Reduced system friction for effective damping adjustment
  • Individual lowering within the TUV-tested adjustment range
  • Front and rear axle (when possible) with thread adjustment
  • Galvanized coilover struts with additional coating for an optimized corrosion protection
  • Complete solution with adjustable spring plate, race spring system and bumpers with dust protection
  • Aluminum adjustable uni-ball top mounts (when possible)
  • Scaled camber adjustment (optionally also caster)
  • Externally adjustable damping
ST Suspension XTA Coilover Kit, Height and Dampening Adjustable Note: Height adjustable front and rear axles Lowering adjustment ranges in inches - Front: 1.2"-2.8" Rear: 1.2"-2.0"; In combination with the original wheel and tires, wheel spacers might need to be used. Because of the design of this specific car, the damping adjustment can only be made when the damper is not mounted. By modifying the interior trim, this problem can be avoided.

ST Sport Lowering Kits
By combining the ST Sport Springs and ST Sport Shocks you get the best of all worlds and take the guess work out of suspension tuning, getting it done right the first time.
ST Sport Springs are specifically engineered for optimal performance and comfort. Improve your ride with ST Suspension Sport Springs to lower the center of gravity, reduce body roll in corners, and limit weight transfer under acceleration.
ST Sport Shocks are designed exclusively for lowered vehicles featuring advanced valve tuning targeted at controlling the higher spring rates associated with performance lowering spring. Shortened or reduced rebound travel optimizes the piston stroke of the shock absorber guaranteeing a balanced chassis under any circumstances.
ST Anti-Sway Bars
Reduce vehicle body roll and increase the traction and gripping power of your tires with a set of ST Anti-Sway Bars. Precision engineered to provide the best performance possible, their cold formed solid steel design is powder coated for durability and comes complete with polyurethane bushings and all hardware needed for easy installation.

Smart Racing Products Alignment Tools

Using SmartStrings along with the SmartCamber Gauge, developed by Craig Watkins, former chief engineer for Flying Lizard Motorsports, you can now perform a full four-wheel alignment precisely and quickly; at home, in the shop, or at the race track!

Powerflex Polyurethane Suspension Bushings

Pelican is pleased to now offer Powerflex polyurethane suspension bushings. These bushings are a great alternative to factory rubber bushings which are more prone to wear, resulting in poor tracking and handling. What are the benefits to using polyurethane over rubber? Prolonged tire life, improved performance, better handling and they are more cost-effective than OEM bushings. Suspension bushings are some of the most highly stressed components fitted to a motor car. They undergo enormous strains in the most arduous of conditions with no maintenance or lubrication. The material they are manufactured from is a rubber compound containing natural products which deteriorate with age. It becomes softer and more pliable, resisting the forces placed on it less and less. Therefore allowing more and more movement of suspension components and offering less and less control over the suspension geometry. This in turn causes accelerated tire wear, braking instability and poor handling. This is the single biggest reason you can instantly tell the difference driving a three year old car compared to a showroom new one. However even new cars will benefit from Powerflex bushings because of their superior design for which they offer much more effective control of the suspension components to a much greater extent than normal rubber items. With the technological advances in this material, it has been possible to overcome the common problem associated with harder bushings, which is increased noise. By correctly engineering the polyurethane compound, bushings can be made 25-30% stiffer than new rubber items, but with exactly the same noise absorbing properties. Powerflex bushings make sense.

All Powerflex bushings include a packet of grease.
